Bobby def. liked to play w/lyrics--

there's also the shows after they signed with Arista that he would sing "We used to play for silver/now we play for CLIVE" in Jack Straw.

He also was more self-aware and/or deprecating when he would mess up lyrics than Jerry, who generally just mumbled his way thru a mistake...Bobby would mock-slap himself in the face after the 6,000th time he butchered the words to "Truckin'"...

...and sometimes changed the "left his dead ass there by the side of the road" to "and I left him lying' there by the side of the road".
